1. The basic basics. 

The object of the game is to kill Minax, evil apprentice of Mondain who we met in the 
original Ultima. In the instructions, it tells you about certain commands, but not which 
objects are necessary. These are: 

View (V): This gives you a bird's eye view of the village, town, castle, time zone, or 
planet you are on. To use this command, you must have a helm. Enemy fighters often 
carry helms. 

Board (B): There is no problem boarding a horse or a plane; however, this is not the case 
with frigates (boats). To board a frigate, you need a blue tassle. Once aboard, you can use 
the fire (F) command, which is more effective then any weapon a character can carry. 

Launch (L): Firstly, to launch a plane ora rocket, you need to have boarded it first. On a 
plane, you need to be carrying a skull key and a brass button to launch. To land, press L 
again while over grass land. If you try to land on a mountain, you die. If you try to land 
over water of forest, it will ignore your command. To launch a rocket, you need two 
things. First, you need to be wearing power armor. Second, you need to be carrying tri- 
lithiums. One tri-lithium is needed for each launch and hyper. Rockets can be found in a 
village in the aftermath (2112) time zone, on an inlet in the area that is currently Russia. 
The village is called Pirate's Harbor. You can get there only through the use of time doors 
and frigates. Rules for landing are the same as with planes. 

Negate Time (N): This eliminates the enemy's ability to move, but not attack. You need a 
strange coin to negate. Each negate will eliminate one coin. 

2. What can I do so that I do not die so quickly? 

I keep on running out of food. Food can be bought at a variety of villages and towns. If 
you are a thief, You can steal (S) the food; however, should you do this, beware of 
guards! If they see you, they will pursue and attack. 

I get the crap beaten out of me, and run out of hit points. By time door and/or frigate, go 
to England in 300 BC or 1990. Enter the castle. On the North central area of the castle, 
there is a sign that says British. Under this sign, there is a king. This is Lord British. 
Transact with him, and he will take fifty gold, and raise your hit points by 300. Later in 
the game, he gives you 200, and then 100. You can have up to 9999 hit points. 

3. Other problems. 

I work my rear end off to buy better armor and weapons, and when I buy them, the game 
tells me that I am either not agile enough to use the weapon, or not strong enough to wear 
the armor. What can I do? In North America in 1990, there is a town in the New Mexico 
area. On the Southwest corner of this town, there is a building called The Hotel 
California. In the South end of this building, there is a merchant. If you transact with this 
merchant, he will say "Welcome to the Hotel California". Offer him 100 gold. He will 
either reply "Thank you very much." or "Alakazam!". If he thanked you, nothing 
happened. If he said Alakazam, one of your attributes went up by four. The attribute is 
chosen by random. If strength is chosen, you will be able to wear better armor. If agility 
is chosen, you will be able to handle a better weapon, or achieve more hits with your 
current weapon. If intellect or wisdom is chosen, your spell casting ability will increase, 
if you are a magician or cleric. If your stamina was chosen, your ability to defend from 
attack increases. If intelligence or charisma is chosen, your bargaining ability increases, 
causing prices to go down. 

I launched a rocket and exploded! You are not wearing power armor! 

I went through something that looked like arrows moving up, and the game said "Field 
takes 1000 hit points!" Ah, you have encountered the force field. To go through this 
unharmed, you need the ring. I will tell you how to get this later. 

What about that Quicksword you mentioned? Ok, this varies. First I will give instructions 
for users of any version that does not allow diagonal movement. First, get 500 gold. Then 
go to New San Antonio (the town with the Hotel California) and go to the upper left 
hand corner. There is a building marked "Airport". To get in you need three keys. To get 
keys, kill guards in any village where it is not to deadly. I suggest Pirate's Harbor in the 
aftermath time zone in Northern Russia. Steal a ship from their port, and fire away! 
Now, after you get to the inside of the airport, you will need to kill the fighter who owns 
it. This will get the guards on your tail. Quickly, board the plane, and launch. Do not 
leave the town. Head East towards the prison. Land on the grass directly outside the 
prison, since cobblestone can not be landed on. Taxi to the door, and unlock it (need a 
key!), and kill the guard. X-it the plane at the doorway. It will serve to block additional 
guards. Go to the cells, and enter the one containing a fighter (another key!). Offer him 
your 500 gold, and he will give you the Quicksword. Try to ready it, if you can't, you will 
need to return for more attributes. Go back to your plane. There will be several guards 
lined up there. Board your plane, launch, and get the hell out of there! The reason that 
you should not go directly to the prison is that without the plane there, those guards 
would enter and kill you. Okay, now for those who can move diagonally. For you, you 
need a total of two keys, and 500 gold. Go straight to the prison. Unlock the door and go 
past the guard peacefully. Go to the fighter, open his cell, give him 500 gold. You can 
then try to ready the Quicksword, leave the prison, and move around the town without 
anyone bothering you. The Quick sword is the only weapon that can kill Minax. 

4. Venturing onward. 

Note: Do not do this until you have both power armor and the Quicksword. Also have at 
least fifteen tri-lithiums. Why should I leave the Earth? It is fun, and necessary for 
attaining the ring. Ok, how do I leave? Find Pirate's Harbor. It is in Aftermath, in North 
Russia. In the town, there is a boat dock that you might have used to raid this village. 
Steal a boat from there. Instead of going down and killing guards, go up. There is a 
building marked mission control, and many rockets. Board one. Launch it. After 
achieving Earth orbit, hyper to co-ordinates 9-9-9. You will either achieve orbit of planet 
X, or drift off course to deep space. If you drift, hyper again, if not, land. If you get a 
CMD: prompt, wait until you are over grass, then (L)and. If you get a <PRESS ANY 
KEY> prompt, again wait for grass and press any key. If you hit mountain, trees or water, 
you will die. If you land succesfully, X-it the rocket, and look for the castle. If you can't 
find it, try (V)iewing. Once you get there, you can go to the top and replace your hit 
points. Inside the left side maze, there is a cleric named Father Antos. To get to him you 
will have to go through swamp and avoid an attack. When you find him, (T)ransact with 
him. He will say "You have my blessing. Now return home and claim the ring!" You can 
get the ring now. From here, you can go to any of the other planets, or back to Earth 

Fine, I ventured and was blessed, now what? When you land on Earth, go to the AD time 
zone. Go to New San Antonio. Above the armory, there is a door to a forest. Open the 
door and go in. There is a sign that says "ATREE". There is an old man under a tree. If 
you (T)ransact with the response will be "An old man whispers 'I'm an old man.'". Give 
him 900 gold. He will give the ring. 

5. Winning 

Here we go. ..First get as many hit points as you can, and get an airplane. Go by time 
door to the legends time zone. Launch, and go South. Land near the castle, and enter it. 
You will most likely be attacked by two devils. Do not attack them! The would let the 
guards loose on you. To get rid of them, I suggest (N)egating time. In the Northwest 
chamber, there is a maze of fields, which at the end of which is Minax! ! ! Attack her. 
When she get's low on hit points, she will teleport to the other chamber. As you walk to 
the other chamber, you will be attacked by several monsters. Go to the other chamber, 
and kill Minax. 

You have won!!!
